With her line of deconstructed tees, California native Raquel Allegra has introduced elegance to the once basic T-shirt. While experimenting with oversized vintage shirts recycled from the Los Angeles County Prison System, the designer created the shredding technique that has become synonymous with her namesake label. The ethereal and informal beauty of the pieces has garnered instant admiration from celebrities, editors, stylists, and savvy consumers from Los Angeles to Beirut.
